> I experience exactly what you experience, both the very rapid cycling (minutes and hours) as well as the noisy brain. My brain isn't only noisy, it's also very busy. I just can't stop thinking. And the noise is just as you describe it (busy train station). I can't remember a time when I wasn't like this. I have been to many mental health professionals who have never picked up on any of it. I've told them about the busy brain but they don't seem to know what it is. Through research on the web I found cyclothymia. I went to another pshychiatrist recently and mentioned the cyclothymia. I told her how quickly the cycles can change and she said this could still be cyclothymia. I don't know what the noisy, busy brain is about but I hope to someday find a mental health professional who does. FYI: I also have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE) which is a brain wave disorder. I'm not sure how this fits in. Best of Luck.

I am cyclothymic as well and lately it seems I am cycling faster. I have always heard music in my head. (from Pantera to television themes)and I can change songs with a little effort. It can be annoying, yet listening to live music makes it go away. When I am in a downward spiral I cannot understand what people are saying or understand the written word. I am constantly under a stream-of-consciousness –fluid thought—and all that. It can come in handy as I am a professional writer. I take prozac and wellabutrin and have added lamictal. Although, I am itching like fire today (only had one dose at 25mg) it was quiet for a while. It was just strange, yet affirming to see others who carry a jukebox with them!
